    Thanks for the information! I talked to my son, it's his truck, apparently the back up lights stay on all the time also. Could these problems be associated?

You need to replace the brake light switch, they can cause this, I saw it more than once as a Ford technician.

    No not related, that would be the range switch on the transmission.

1992 Buick Park Ave. won't start after pressing brake pedal.


sometimes the other switch is to cut out the cruise control when the brake is applied. I would more suspect something in the fuel injection controls such as a mass air flow sensor or throttle "switch." your car is probably too old to have an auxiliary air bypass valve but if it has one look at it as well. good luck

Could be as simple as a brake sensor ( that is your anti-lock braking system it is tied into the traction control system ) Good luck it is a easy replacement part if that is what it is.

1993 blazer parking brake light won't shut off


Are you sure the brake light (on the dash) is on because of the parking brake ?
Try this. Watch the brake light and at the same time set your parking brake. If the light seems to get slightly brighter then it isn't on due to the parking brake it is on for another reason.
If it does not get brighter then you need to look at the parking brake switch down by the parking brake as it may be grounded out causing the light to be on.
Be sure to check the brake fluid level. If it is low on brake fluid it will turn the light on also.

Brake Light


to narrow things down... park the vehicle in the driveway over night... when you move it in the morning ... note the area of the spill on your driveway as it would apply to the car.
Two quick things... what is the level of your brake fluid and what colour and smell was the spill ?
